Pie :)

My double Thanksgiving dinner dilemma went alright yesterday. I ate at mom’s house and after we finished eating, I was able to escape the yelling and violence that my cousins brought along with them. Not a pie to pitch in to the dinner, or the turkey my aunt was supposed to bring. Instead, they only brought their trouble and themselves.

Anyway, I got away from it all by running to my boyfriend’s dad’s house. It was awkward to sit and wait ’til everyone finished, watching football (I don’t like watching football), and only eat some pie from the entire meal. It was nice, though, hearing the small children babble nonstop, their mother telling them to stop doing this and that, and eating two types of pie.

I love pie 🙂

Now I’m off to eat this last piece of pumpkin pie with extra whip cream and then get ready for a holiday weekend at my boyfriend’s dad’s house.

BTW: No black friday shopping for this girl 😉


A Double Thanksgiving Dilemma

As commercials boast of early Christmas planning and I watch Generation Cryo, I think of my Turkey Day dilemma. Two dinners and one me… Yupp, I’m supposed to eat this feast at my own place with the blood family I hate and my future in-laws I love. Don’t get me wrong- I love my mom and grandmother in a love-hate relationship kind of way, it’s just that I can’t stand my cousins or my aunt. My mother and grandmother are hard enough as it is.

I know I should be thankful, especially around this season, for the little bit of family that I do know, but I can’t help but to feel my psychic powers shining through right now. I’m seeing plenty of visions of total chaos tomorrow. Me, I’ll be the only sane one. If only everyone knew what my family was like. Full of lying, faking, stealing, psychotic people.

My boyfriend’s family is pretty far out there, too, just not in the malicious kind of way my family is. His dad is the one doing the cooking, so the taste of the food won’t be very good at all, to put it bluntly. His half sister, her kids, and her husband are going to be there. I just met them yesterday. By the way, I’m extremely shy, unlike all of my boyfriend’s gregarious family. Oh, his brother will be there and he’s been pretty shy around the kids, too, so I won’t be too lonely. At least I’ll have someone to talk to Skyrim, GTA 5, and Call of Duty: Ghosts about.

*My boyfriend turned me into a gamer.*

I’m only 17 so of course I have to do what my mom says. What does this woman say? I can eat dinner at the house first and then go to his house. Hmm. My poor stomach. How will I be able two large dinners? Eat a little at both? That would be a wee bit hard because at 58 inches and 95 pounds, all it takes to fill me up is a glass of water and a salad.

The point of Thanksgiving is to be with the one’s you love and to be thankful for everything you have. Gratitude? I’m grateful for everything I have on a daily basis…

To be with the one’s I love? That’s all I’ve ever tried to do. I’ve tried beyond reasoning to earn the love I deserve from the blood family that’s supposed to love me unconditionally. I can’t work on a hopeless case anymore. It’s time to move forward. And that, I’m thankful for.

Young Writer in Need of Help!

Hello, everyone, I’m writing a book on my school computer, but I have no idea what to do to publish it once I’m finished with it. I’m working on the 6th chapter, and it’s on the 103rd page so far. My goal is to have it be a series and I want each book to be about 400 pages or more.

How do I get a book published?

Also, I wanted to know if this is good plot:

My book starts off with my main character, Evi, running away from her twisted and murderous past and into the arms of Jack- the leader of a small band of travelers. Evi thought she got away from people betraying her when she killed Catherine and Henry, but she was wrong. Jack and his crew only use Evi when they believe she has something she wants until Evi finds Blue, an innocent and intelligent spirit, at an abandoned lake house. She also meets Max, a unicorn, and runs away when Jack’s team wants to kill her because they believe her to be the cause of one of their team member’s death.

Evi still doesn’t believe that any of this is real and that she’s just psychotic because of everything she went through.

However, she soon discovers that there are perceptions, like parallel universes. Throughout the first book, Evi will face her past while running faster than ever from everyone in Satré, the magical perception. See, Satré is looking for its next King or Queen. It’s further explained in the book, but it’s basically a giant game where humans are selected by Lords or Ladies of Satré to represent them. Then, they have to kill the other human representatives to make sure they don’t die and they can choose to make their Lord or Lady the King or Queen, or they can opt to become the King or Queen themselves. 

Buuuut anyway, that’s the basics of my book and I was wondering what you think? I have a few different endings in mind, but if I get this published, I don’t want the ending to be spoiled. I’ll just say that what I have in mind is going to make readers really mad until they can get their hands on the second book.

Thank you!

P.S.- If I decide to be a “one book wonder,” then readers are probably going to be very upset with my ending…
